    Lightbulb When people start driving less and if manufacturers make more Fuel-efficient cars, t

    Hello All,
    I need any help to know which of these sentences are grammatically correct.
    And, is it necessary to use "parallel structure" using coordination when we just want to join two clauses not phrases or adjectives?

    "When people start driving less and if manufacturers make more fuel-efficient cars, there will be less enviromental damage."

    "When people start driving less and if manufacturers start making more fuel-efficient cars, there will be less enviromental damage."
    Thanks

    Re: When people start driving less and if manufacturers make more Fuel-efficient car

    Both sentences will be grammatically correct if you fix three errors: "fuel" is not a proper noun so you shouldn't capitalize it, and you mis-spelled "environmental" and "start".

    Here's a more logical, natural, and concise version: If people drove less and manufacturers made more fuel-efficient cars, there would be less environmental damage.
